Whole genome amplification (WGA) is a technique that could non-selectively amplify the genomic DNA. In recent years, intensive studies have been made on application of WGA in trace DNA amplification, which might be applied to amplify trace DNA collected from crime scenes and provide enough DNA templates for forensic individual identification. However, the problem of amplification bias happened in the complicated test materials from real crime scenes is still troublesome. Development of WGA… CONTINUE READING
